Role of dendritic cell-derived CXCL13 in the pathogenesis of Bartonella henselae B-rich granuloma.

Abstract

Dendritic cells (DCs) initiate adaptive immunity and regulate the inflammatory response by producing inflammatory chemokines. This study was aimed to elucidate their role in the pathogenesis of the suppurative granuloma induced by Bartonella henselae infection, which characterizes cat scratch disease (CSD). In vitro DC infection by B. henselae results in… (More)
